           Summary: Attaching Policy to WS-Mex GetMetadata
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: PR
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: MetadataExchange
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org
        ReportedBy: katy_warr@uk.ibm.com

We should consider clarifying or recommending how policy should be associated
with a WS-MetadataExchange GetMetadata request.  ('Policy' might be existing
policies such as WS-SecurityPolicy or potential new assertions, as described in
issue 6406 here: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=6406).

A GetMetadata operation's policy cannot be attached within the Web service
endpoint's WSDL because: 
In order for a client to establish the WS-Mex GetMetadata policy, it would need
to issue a GetMetadata(WSDL) request at the web service endpoint...but in order
to issue a GetMetadata request at the endpoint it would need to establish the
WS-Mex GetMetadata policy...

The issue here is: what is the correct way to bootstrap the bootstrap (without
entering an infinite loop)?
